Meet Me in St Louis

Book by Hugh Wheeler

Music & Lyrics by Hugh Martin and Ralph Blane

 

17 – 21 December

 

“So won’t you meet me in St. Louis, Louis. Meet me at the Fair.”

Based on the heartwarming MGM film starring Judy Garland, Meet Me in St Louis is a rare treasure of musical theatre: a wholesome and delightful portrait of a turn-of-the-century American family over the course of one eventful year.

It is the summer of 1903, and the Smith family eagerly anticipates the opening of the 1904 World’s Fair in St Louis. As the months pass, and the big event draws closer, the family’s mutual respect, tempered with good-natured humour, helps them through romance, opportunity, and heartbreaks.

The musical includes seven of the best-loved songs from the film, plus ten additional Martin and Blane songs written especially for the stage.

Memorable musical numbers include “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,” “The Boy Next Door,” “The Trolley Song,” and “Whenever I’m With You.”
